Parental Milestone

About a week ago we crossed a parental milestone . . . orthodontics! Normally averted at Everett's young age of almost 8, but with three dangerous cross bites all involving adult teeth, it seems time for attention and action. So, oh to keenly remembering my orthodontic nightmares, I mean memories, I'm taking him to multiple doctors for multiple choices. So far it has paid off. We have seen two doctors. Both agree on the problem. Both have offered a different way of achieving the same goal. Both have included Everett in the discussion. Both want my arm and part of my leg ;-)

(Before the short jokes start, I know my leg isn't worth much)

Everett: "Momma, what's a mascot?"
Me: "It's something or someone who represents for a group. It's usually something very strong."
Isobel: "Daddy's our mascot!"
